Well, you need to run objdump -p on those files and check if the SONAME is
the same as it is in the files in the current libgmp3 packages. If it's the
same, there's no other choice but to keep the same package name, how ever
inconsistent it may seem.

(It's rather doubtful that they really kept compatibility and bumped the
major version, but hey...)
